MTU Flex Team Summary: Week Ending September 18

by MTU Flex Team

Our second full week of surveillance testing is nearly complete. The last seven days resulted in 544 surveillance tests conducted, with a detection rate of 1.5 percent, or eight cases where COVID-19 was detected. Student participation in testing remains strong, as weekly total test goals were surpassed both this week and last. We thank all students who participated.   

Our testing suggests that transmission, while occurring at a lower rate than in past weeks, could be happening in shared housing situations and within a case’s immediate social circle. We are unaware of any spread related to on-campus educational activity.
